Chill, Nervous, Tired, Excited

I feel like I’m running out of energy.  Exactly 24 days to show day.  Eeeeeek!  Carbs have been at 50grams for 5 days now (I get 100 carbs today! PARTY!).  2-a-days started this week also.  But what’s killing me more than any of that is my husband isn’t sleeping!  He tosses, snores, smacks his lips,

“I like the fat Tara better.”

“I liked the fat Tara better.  You aren’t fun like you used to be.”  My mom says to me.  I’m shocked!  But as I let go of this crazy feeling I have to be this professional person to fit in, somebody worth listening to, to be taken seriously, or to feel successful, my fun side

First Day of Push

First day of push was….. different.  Intensely different. At first glance of my program I have to admit I was a little dissappointed.  I still have that mind set that more is better.  Not fully realizing that less IS more.  This workout had me clearly aware of this fact. I started off with DB decline

Preparing My Lats & Delts for Competition

Moving on with my training here.  I’ve worked on adding size to my glutes which has turned out very well.  For someone that was always made fun of for the lack of having a booty, this makes me very happy.  I have to admit I actually stop while walking past a mirror and admire my

Jumping Rope – Is It Really That Easy!?

How to Jump Rope – is what I googled this morning. What I got out of the article is, “Throw the jump rope over your head and when it meets your feet, jump over it”. I just knew it had to be harder than that! LOL, talk about making things harder than they are, that’s

Another Source of Inspiration – Anne Via Zakielarz

Wow! I found this success story in the 2008 June issue of Muscle and Fitness. Truly amazing! I love seeing women achieve the same goals I’m working on. It further solidifies my belief it WILL happen one day and maybe not exactly by the day I tell it to happen. Anne’s story is one that

The Scale Lies!

I’ve had a hard time throughout this whole process with the scale loving to hate me! But it just dawned on me that I’m in a place far different than what the scale says. I recently bought a pair of shorts, size 12. The last time I bought a size 12 I was 20lbs LIGHTER

Starting Out in 2008

Sooooo, it’s 2008.  I go into this year with 9 months left to hitting my goal.  Thinking about how quickly, 3 months went by and what I accomplished IN those 3 months makes me very nervous of what I will accomplish in “only” 9 months.  (which actually comforts me because I KNOW I’ll MAKE this

Letting My Short Term Goal Slip Away

I only had ONE more friggin’ pound to make 200 and one TENTH of a FRIGGIN’ pound to make UNDER 200.  Now I’m hoping I haven’t blown it.  My goal (obviously I didn’t care about as much as I thought I did) was to get under 200 and start the New Year below 200!!  Christmas
